I forgot to mention that the good folk at SONY gave the two chemo kids a rather special gift at the end of the visit on Saturday. They'd spotted two small bags and I'd thought it might be something like an MP3 player, but it turned out to be the very latest Playstation Portable! It was a reminder of how kind his school chums had been back when Pads started treatment, buying him a DS which has been a brilliant source of distraction when nothing else would do it.
The last couple of days have been quiet, with Pads finishing his antibiotic course from ten days ago. He's still weak and neutropenic but the days tick by. Today he's to have another swine flu jab. The last one really caused him a lot of pain for days... And we've all got to have it.
